Christmas Card & Ornament


It's Anja here. I have a 2 in 1 card for you today. I made a card with an ornament you can remove and place it on your Christmas tree.

For this card I used:

- Cottage Cutz dies (Snowman Joy Ornament, Merry Christmas Love, Circle Set),

- Distress Ink,

- Zig water color brush markers,

- white card base (15x15 cm),

- red card stock for background (14x14 cm) and die cuts,

- white water color paper for die cuts and background (13,5x13,5 cm),

- gold acrylic spray,

- gold marker,

- white pen,

- black pen,

- glitter brush,

- brush,

- thread  (aprox. 20 cm), 

- heat gun,

- paper glue. 

First I cut the ornament and the circle. I cut two pieces of the ornament. I colored the circle with blue shade of ink.

I combined two ornaments (I cut one piece in the way that all the small pieces stayed in the silhouette) and placed it on the circle. Then I colored it.

Next I cut all the pieces for the background. I cut the ornament out of the watercolor paper. I used the positive and the negative later on. I also cut two sentiments and glued the red paper on the top of the white one.

Then I colored the background. I sprayed gold acrylic color to the glass mat and tapped the paper over it. I dried the paper with the heat gun.

When all the pieces were ready I glued the red background, gold background and one piece of the ornament on the card base. Next I added the sentiment. I only glued letters "m" and "y" of "merry" and "c" and "as" of "Christmas". I also added a bit of glue to the bottom of the rest letters of "Christmas" to hold the ornament. I added a piece of thread to the ornament. When the glue was dried I inserted the ornament in the middle and my card was finished.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a nice day and see you again tomorrow for another post.

So cute Anja- I like receiving hand made cards with a tag for the tree and I am sure the recipient of this beauty will love it also
